Always #WearYourHelmet | @TorontoPolice Kids Bike Helmet Safety PSA | Autumn 2019 [0:30]

The Toronto Police Service has created this video in partnership with Sick Kids Hospital, the Toronto Catholic District School Board, and Toronto Public Health, to encourage children to always #WearYourHelmet when cycling. The video also encourages and reminds parents to make sure their child is always wearing a helmet when on a bicycle.

Wheeled activities are a great way to get active, have fun and stay healthy. Remember to stay safe while having fun, and always #WearYourHelmet! A head injury can permanently change the way a child walks, talks, plays and thinks. Wearing a helmet will help protect the head.

Children and youth under 18 are required by law to wear a helmet when cycling in Ontario. Toronto Public Health encourages all people - of all ages - participating in wheeled activities (bikes, scooters, inline skates/roller blades, skateboards) to wear a helmet, regardless of age.

Fitting a Helmet Properly:

All helmets fit differently. Here are a few tips to help you properly fit a helmet.

For bicycle helmets, also worn for in-line skating, riding a non-motorized scooter or when using shoes with wheels. Know the 2-V-1 rule:

"2": Put the helmet level on the head, not tilting backward or forward
Helmet should cover the top of the head and sit 2 finger-widths above your eyebrows. Adjust the fit of the helmet by adding or repositioning the foam pads. Move the dial or other fitting devices so it fits snug.

"V": The side straps should meet to form a V below each ear
If your helmet tilts back, tighten the front straps. If your helmet tilts forward, tighten the back straps

"1": Fit no more than one 1 finger between chin and fastened strap.

All helmets should fit close to your head. Shake your head up and down and side to side - the helmet should not move.
